A nice surprise

I’ve been rather slow in getting around to thanking Joanne for the wonderful surprise she gave me last week when she sent me The Beautiful Blogger Award. I shall do my best to live up to this prestigious title, though I’ve been such a slack blogger lately, I don’t feel like I deserve it!

Now the hard part – choosing ten more worthy recipients. Don’t get me wrong. I could give this to twenty blogs and still miss some that deserve it. But who to give it to? Choosing is the hard part. Some blogs I read just don’t seem the sort to want this type of award. Others I know, have been even less active than me lately. However, I will do my best. In no particular order -

Christy at Christy's Creative Space
Rena at Rena Jones
Sandra at Sandra's Blog
Lilycate at The Literary LilyCate
Trish at Adventures of Molly Mavis Gumnut
Christina at Chocolate for Inspiration
Randi at *for the love of Writing

Sorry, that’s only 7. But they’re the ones that spring to mind. That’s the downside of these awards. I’m bound to have missed someone who’ll think ‘Why didn’t she pick me?’ and chances are, I should have done, because all the blogs I read are really great. Apologies in advance to anyone I missed. The fault is mine, not yours.

And thanks again, Joanne.

Thanks! :0) Congrats!

Rena said...

Awww, thanks! I know what you mean about some wanting them more than others. I never know who to send them too, since there are so many good blogs out there.

Trish said...

Thanks, Kate. What a nice surprise.
I'll have to figure out how to do the same for the blogs I love.

Umm, how did you do it? :)

Oh, when I checked my list of blogs, I noticed yours was missing. I don't know how that happened because I recieve your updates. I must have forgot to hit save when I added it to the list. Well, it's back there now.

Thanks again, Kate.

Kate said...

Just write your list Trish, then highlight each one and hit the hyperlink button. You just copy and paste their URLs into the box that comes up and then you'll have them all linked to their sites.

Sound easy? ;)

Trish said...

Thanks, Kate, but where did you get the lovely badge at the top of the post from? Did you design it?

Kate said...

Yes, Trish, that's one of my drawings.I got a bit tired of the lollipops and they didn't match the new background. I change my blog template almost as often as I change my socks!
